OSU Wins All-Sports Bedlam Series for Fifth Consecutive Year

Published

on

Oklahoma State got the best of its in-state rival for the fifth-straight year in the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oklahoma all-sports Bedlam series, and it did it in convincing fashion. The combined tally of 18-10 is the largest margin in the history of the series which has been scored since the 1999-2000 athletic season.

This Bedlam season had some highs for OSU, headlined by a 1-1 regular season split in men’s basketball that ended with an thrilling overtime win over the Fightin’ Trae Youngs and a throttling of the Sooners in the Big 12 Tournament.

Josh Holliday’s crew did its part sweeping the Sooners 4-0 by a combined score of 34-4 (!). Jim Littell’s Cowgirls also went 2-0 against OU in women’s basketball and Colin Carmichael’s Cowgirls went 3-0 against the Sooners in soccer.

Kenny Gajewski’s squad went 0-3 against Patty Gasso’s Sooner softball powerhouse, but the most painful loss on this list is undoubtedly the continuation of a 2-11 career trend for Mike Gundy. This season he had the horses to run with that schooner and the Cowboys still came up short. We did get to see an all-time game inside BPS, but I still don’t know if that made it any easier to stomach.

Here’s a look at the full Bedlam scoreboard for this past season.

Will Mike Gundy ever get back in the black in his Sooner-red ledger? The odds aren’t good at this point. At least some of the other sports are taking up the slack for Oklahoma State.
